Ypsilanti Township man arrested for heroin possession
A 53-year-old man from Ypsilanti Township was arrested for heroin possession Thursday.
An officer with the Pittsfield Township Department of Public Safety pulled the suspect over at about 1:30 p.m. near the intersection of Golfside Drive and Washtenaw Avenue for not wearing his seatbelt. At that time, the officer found 0.5 grams of heroin in the suspect’s vehicle.
The man was arrested, processed and released, pending charges. Pittsfield Lt. Brandon Williams said that is typical of a small quantity possession.
The heroin will be sent to the crime lab for analysis, following which the man will be formally charged, Williams said.
